Expert Packing for Moving to Germany

Today is the day! Your move to Germany is booked and it's time to get packing. Unlike some countries, Germany does not allow containers packed by the owner (PBO) into its borders.

This means that if you try to move any items packed by yourself, they may be delayed or even denied entry into the country, resulting in long delays and extra charges.

At Hercules Moving Company, we have years of experience in international moving and understand the importance of expert packing for overseas relocation. Therefore, our team of expert packers use the best packing materials and techniques for your move.

We will use branded Alligator wrap instead of conventional moving blankets to protect your furniture from damage during transport. Additionally, we will provide you with extra sturdy international moving boxes designed specifically for overseas transportation.

International packing requires more effort than local packing. Our team will make sure all your items are securely packed and also prepare an inventory that meets all import and export requirements set by German customs.

Furthermore, we will ensure that all your items are packaged in a way that they remain safe during transport across the seas.

Customs Clearance When Moving to Germany

When moving to Germany, your shipment will be loaded and shipped with a preferred method to the destination country. Upon arrival, the shipment will be sent to the port, where it must go through customs clearance processes before being released.

This process is complex and involves documentation detailing the items in the shipment and any related fees or taxes that need to be paid.

At Hercules Moving Company, our experienced professionals have extensive knowledge of the customs clearance process required when shipping items to Germany. We are committed to providing personalized support throughout this process, including completing all necessary paperwork on behalf of our clients.

In addition, we can answer any questions you may have regarding customs procedures and regulations.

Our custom clearance services guarantee a smooth transition for all clients relocating to Germany. We understand how important it is for customers that their shipments arrive on time without any issues or delays, which is why we strive to ensure a fast and efficient customs clearance process for every move.

With us by your side during this process, you can rest assured that your move will go as smoothly as possible!

Delivery to Germany

Once the items have cleared customs, they are then delivered to the client's new home overseas. This process is handled by a trusted agent in the destination country, also known as destination service.

Delivery is an optional service that clients can choose if they have selected door-to-door service, or they can opt to handle delivery themselves if they prefer.

Debris removal is included when it is on the same moving day – this is a free service that helps customers keep their new homes clean and tidy after the move. Furthermore, movers can also help stage furniture how you like in a new home.

With our delivery services, individuals relocating to Germany can focus on settling into their new home without worrying about the logistics of moving. Contact us today for a free quote and let us help you with your overseas relocation!

What Clients say About Us

Hercules rescued my move when another Toronto movers cancelled on me days before the big day. They were professional and knew exactly how to protect all of my belongings during the move in terrible rain.

Our piano was recently moved for the first time after having been in our house for 30 years. I was very impressed with the movers' professionalism, their friendliness and for being patient in their handling of the piano and its delivery to Mississauga. They took their time to use extra padding on this big instrument and also used extra floor covering so as not to scratch the hardwood flooring.I would highly recommend them to anyone and everyone!


Absolutely professional, details such as lift it up and not just tip it over. Well packing, cover floor during the placing, clean and tidy.

I hired this company about month ago to move me into new house. 3 athletic looking guys arrived on-time and did a very good job. Whatever I did not finish packing -they did it for me. Then loaded all my staff into big truck and moved into new house. They were working nonstop. Everything was done very accurately within promised time. Very responsible and polite guys. If happens to move again I certainly will hire them again and of course will recommend this company to my friends. Greater job guys. Thanks a lot.

Hercules did a great job - they were prompt, worked hard and were extremely diligent. Their attention to detail was fantastic.

Very satisfied with the moving job. Work was done professionally and in a timely manner. Thanks to the professional North York movers who helped us move our piano in - 20 degree weather!

A++++++++. Hercules Moving is the only company I would ever hire if I had to move again. The crew was amazingly fast, professional, and very careful with our stuff. They wrapped all the fueniture with pads and plastic wrap making it very difficult to scratch. Not only to mention the excellent customer service they provided all along. Hercules is simply the best!

Pick up and delivery were done right on time. Very professional. They even cleaned the rear side of the piano for me. Highly recommended.

Donald Quan

I used Hercules for a non-piano move for the first time from their Storage Toronto. I expected only the best service from them as I’ve experienced how they treat Concert pianos and they delivered 100%. The time and cost they quoted was exactly what it took. They really know how to quote their services. No surprises....so rare in a moving company. They came over-prepared with blankets, stair coverings, wrappings, mega tape. They were not about to let anything happen to my valuable stuff. Best movers I’ve ever used.....they almost take moving to an art form.

I was very happy with Hercules and the way they handled my piano move. After a mixup with the original moving company I hired to move a piano just before Christmas, I contacted Hercules. They were able to schedule me The following Tuesday. Unfortunately the Tuesday became Wednesday, due to an illness with one of the movers. George contacted me on Monday to let me know, rather than Tuesday morning, which I appreciated. The movers arrived within the timeframe I was given and moved the piano both efficiently and professionally. I definitely recommend them they are the best Burlington movers in Simcoe County.

I have used the services of Hercules Moving Company multiple times, both for personal relocation and office moving of a large company. Ottawa office movers are professionals in their field, they are neat, clean and do their job well! If you have any questions related to the office move or moving in general, I recommend always contacting this company.


I cannot even begin to describe how dedicated and experienced these movers are... They were life-savers on my moving day and truly believe in the highest level of performance.

The crew was extremely professional and organized. they kept us up to date about the arrival time and they took such great care of the piano while transporting. We are very satisfied with the work!

Donald Quan

Used Hercules for the first time for the move of my very expensive and rare C.Bechstein grand - I was so pleased with their service an demeanour at the baby coddling care they used in handling my pride and joy that I will be using them for all of my piano moves from here on. I highly recommend these Guelph movers. Donald Quan - award winning film composer.

Excellent service! All individuals I dealt with went above and beyond, including rearranging their schedule to accommodate the move. The team moving were so quick, clean and extremely careful to ensure no damage occurred to anything. Would recommend Hercules Moving in a heartbeat.
